Top Customer Reviews
The price you pay for this value is that the SM81 capsules don't have internal shock mounting. So you definitely need some kind of shock mount with them. You can find aftermarket suspension types that look effective, but the ones I've seen cost more than these and take up more room.
The mics are a little tough to push into the doughnut. This ensures that they won't slip out, I guess, but I worry that eventually I'll damage the rubbery material the doughnuts are made of. Time will tell.
In any case, once they're in, the vibration isolation seems quite good, though I have no way to measure it. Even with the stand on a wood floor in an old church sanctuary, the mics didn't pick up any floor vibrations that I could detect.
I also use these mounts with the older, discontinued SM80s, with equal success.
At the price, these do the job. I pronounce them a respectable deal.
No problem inserting or removing the mic from the clip -- the mic is held firmly, but slips in/out with relative ease. There's a bit of streaking left on the microphone. This might only happen the first few times of use as the new plastic scrapes on the body of the mic -- can't say. It's not significant to us and not a problem.
I don't really want to snug from the capsule, but snugging from the back requires moving though the slightly elevated Neumann logo plate.
A53M has very solid build, but I am not sure if the Neumann plate will damage the soft plastic.
Once the mic's in, it is very secure. Of course, a pain to get it out.
On the other hand, Oktava MK-012 fits perfectly in without hassle.
